You are invited to a private viewing  of  one of the only three Grade 2* listed properties in Newtown. It is a 15th century building important to the history of Wales being  reputedly one of Owain Glyndwrs’ parliament houses originally built in the centre of Dolgellau. Come and hear a fascinating history dating back the early 1400’s, the campaign to save it in the 1870’s and it’s removal to Newtown by Pryce Jones and it’s  erection in his parkland.  The talk will also describe  it’s recent restoration and the techniques used.
